Paul Gudas had planned to build an 8,000-square-foot wood-framed home a few months ago, before he learned about a decades-old but relatively unknown construction method.
After several months of planning and designing, Gudas decided the wood-framed house was a no go. He had heard about a local architect using insular concrete forms, a construction method recently gaining the attention of customers, construction workers and architects nationally.
Right before Gudas went to get his building permit, he called architect Leigh Overland and asked him to redesign the home by using the insulating concrete form, or ICF, method instead.
